Here is a project that I have just finished today, January 4th 2009. Today happens to be the birthday of my 4 year old and this is for her. She is all about fairies and princesses and fairy tales. So I designed this Toadstool Castle Toybox chair for her. It could be easily adapted to fit a boy by changing the design of the top to a more kingly looking castle and by painting is in gray, black and silver, I imagine the seat part being covered with red velvet. Sounds cool anyway. I hope that you enjoy it.

I got the cushion foam at Hobby Lobby and covered it with some fabric. But if you don't have a Hobby Lobby around you could just us a pillow and then cover with the fabric. Or visit your local thrift shop and get one of those tie on kitchen chair cushions (or even at WalMart) and then cut it down to size and cover that. Hope this helps. Have a great day!
Forget the kids! I want a grown-up size one for moi ;0)
